So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The gospel of Jesus Christ leads lost people to saving grace. The power of God’s Word calls people to trust in the name of Jesus and causes people’s faith to be strengthened.
Sadly, there are a lot of people in the world today who are not searching for truth. People believe much of what they hear to be true, even if it isn’t. The media only tells people what they want them to hear and many times that means leaving out the truth.
One thing we can stand firm on is that the Word of God is true. All of Scripture is God’s truth to mankind. Truth produces faith and faith produces love and love produces patience.
Faith opens our hearts and minds to understand God’s truth. Only those who hear the Word of God can repent of sin and trust Jesus for eternal life. This is why God’s Word is so important.
As Christians, we need to be consumed in the Word of God so we can know and understand the perfect plan of God. Scripture will reveal what we need to know. However, if we never turn to the Word of God we will never understand what God desires for us to know.
Maintaining a constant and consistent study and meditation of the Bible will allow us to hear from God and to align our lives with what He desires.
Lord, give me the desire to know the truth through reading Your word. Help me to align my heart with Your heart. Only Your word will I hide in my heart.
